AboutAre you a Christian in technology? Kingdom Code draws together Christians who are passionate about technology. Whether you work as a developer, designer, data guru, product manager, entrepreneur or simply have a vision - everyone is welcome. Kingdom Code wants to catalyse serendipity - by seeing friendships, ideas and projects flourish as a result of making a dedicated space for Christians in tech. We want to help you give and receive encouragement amongst likeminded people; meetup around exciting ideas and speakers; and explore how we can use tech to serve Kingdom purposes and the common good. Especially look out for our 'Code for the Kingdom' hackathon. If you want to find out more, make friends and connect with others in the tech space then sign up to our email list and come to our next event. All are welcome. Kingdom Code was founded by Rupert Edwards, creator of Lepton, the church giving app, and Andy Geers - creator of the PrayerMate app.

Code for the Kingdom Hackathon
Kingdom Code is pioneering the UK’s first faith-inspired hackathon this October - joining a global initiative run by the Leadership Network. We are bringing together visionaries, entrepreneurs, technologists, and creaIves to use their gifts to advance the Gospel. The Global Hackathon will run in 15 locations simultaneously, including Addis Ababa, Bangalore, Houston, Jakarta, Los Angeles and London.

The Kingdom Code BlogWhere technology and mission come together
- At the beginning of the month we shared with you the global challenges that are being worked on across the different Code for the Kingdom events around the world. Today we want to share with you the challenges that we are setting specifically in the UK Code for the Kingdom hackathon.
- On Monday night we were back at the Impact Hub. Benjamin Welby ran a really helpful workshop with some of the Kingdom Code community going through turning ideas into a delightful product.
- One of my favourite verses in the Bible can be found in the Book of Ephesians:
“For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”Whether you are a software developer, an entrepreneur or a marketing guru, it’s no mistake that God has imbued you with these talents and placed you in a world where they could come to fruition.
- While individuals and teams are welcome to come to the hackathon with they own projects and ideas, one of exciting parts of this weekend is working towards the challenges. In this post we’re giving an outline of the challenges that are happening in all the 14 locations around the world. Next week we’ll be posting about the local challenges set by our sponsors.
